    this question keeps coming up, so I'll give a brief overview.

    Currently there are two COS Aides
    Corporal Ticknor and Specialist Collins(Thumper transferred back into a line billet a few days ago and Collins was brought on to replace him).

    Their ongoing role is that of information gathering, each one of them is assigned a section of the cav to monitor on a monthly basis and provide myself with statistics and deeper status reports on the situation in them. This is so that in my role as COS I can accurately gauge the health of the regiment and identify specific problem areas that need extra attention.

    Stemming from the information gathering I often have additional tasks that are doled out.

    Some are rolling tasks such as continuous monitoring of upcoming games for potential growth.

    Some are semi-permanent assignments such as Ticknor's posting as the acting sgm of 2nd bat.

    And others are one off assignments, these usually stem from their information gathering, where a problem is identified and I will usually have them interface with relevant command to identify a solution and a plan to solve it.

    as always, I am happy to answer any further questions or explain other matters
    Bell.K, Naman.C and Nexhex.A like this.
